Private Art Lessons

Having spent many years creating art in a variety of styles and mediums, and possessing an acute sensitivity and respect for a wide variety of artistic expression,  John Varriano is particularly well equipped to understand the definitive needs of individual students in obtaining their personal artistic goals.


For those students desiring a formal method rooted in Classical tradition, Varriano takes an intensive approach to teaching including all of the fundamentals such as the study of composition, drawing, painting, anatomy, perspective, color and tone.  The mode he employs is progressive starting with the very basics and moving in time to more advanced concepts and techniques.
